RECOVERY STARTS WITH SHELTER


Recovery starts with shelter. It starts with having a private place for your family to be together. A place to call home. Shelter provides privacy, security, and a feeling of home. When families don’t have to worry about where they will sleep, they can begin the process of self-recovery.

With shelter, tools, and household items like solar lights, water filters, and cooking sets, families can rebuild their lives after disaster.

Only 1 in 5 families received shelter and non-food items in 2017. That’s a shortfall of 81%.

In the last five years, shelter provision has been consistently underfunded. By helping provide the emergency shelter and tools families need to self-recover, we’re transforming despair into hope.
